It’s been a while since I wrote a post. That’s due to 1; the lack of internet access and 2; I don’t want to spend time indoors in front of a computer when I can explore Africa or drink beer in the sun.
Anyways, now we are at a internet cafe in Uganda’s capital, Kampala. We arrived in Uganda Thursday the 12th after a super nice stay in South Africa. We rented a car in Cape Town and traveled along the famous Garden Route towards our final destination, Port Elizabeth. Along the way we stayed in Struis Bay where we made a visit to the southern most point of Africa. In Plettenberg Bay (aka “Plett”), a super nice little town where we surfed, spotted whales, went hiking and chilled out with big cats like cheetahs and leopards. Unfortunately we didn’t (bungy) jump of any bridge as planned. It was very expensive, plus we had been up really early surfing for hours, so we didn’t really feel like it. Our final stop was Port Elizabeth before leaving South Africa for Uganda.
In Uganda I have been to Kampala and the town where Maria lives, Masaka. It’s a small, nice town in the countryside. Maria and here buddy’s live in a big house on the top of a hill with a great view over the valley where the town is located. The house is located on a big nice lot with lots of greens and wildlife in and around.
Uganda is a very poor country and the feeling is a little bit like being at a big music festival like the one in Roskilde. It’s dirty, people everywhere just walking/hanging around, small shed shops and fire smoke in the air (not as many drunk people though). The car pollution, the roads and the traffic is very bad! But it’s a nice very green country.
Tomorrow we will be off on our whitewater rafting adventure. After that it’s safari and then Zanzibar. I’m really locking forward to it!
I will probably not be able to upload any photos until I find a Wi-Fi (which is pretty rare) or I get home :(
